Multidrug Resistant Superbugs

Antibiotics have been extensively used to treat patients with infectious diseases for the last 70 years. As these drugs have been used widely for long time, the organisms the antibiotics are designed to kill have adapted to them, making the drugs less effective. This can be prevented through selective separation, identification and eradication using fluorescent, magnetic multifunctional carbon dots.

Identifying Optimal Concentrations for Sonoluminescence

The purpose of this project was to identify the optimal concentrations of luminol and sodium carbonate for maximum light output by using image analysis in order to construct mathematical models in MATLAB.

Phytoplankton Plastid Proteomics & Biochemistry

The global epidemic of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has brought many researchers together in an attempt to find a solution. One such idea for sequestering CO2 out of the atmosphere is to employ phytoplankton, a dominant oceanic primary producer.

Maximizing Gibberellic Acid’s Efficiency to Increase Growth

Gibberellic acid (GA3) is a plant hormone that was first isolated from the fungus Gibberella in Japan in the 1930s. It was found to promote plant growth activity.  Gibberellic acid has since been isolated from a variety of different plant types, ranging from beans to tobacco.

Citrus Juices on Kidney Bean Plants

Modeling the effects of cryopreservation on kidney bean plants to learn which environment will best suit the plant for efficient growth and sustainability.

Common Cations on DNA Degradation

The process of DNA degradation is important to many scientific studies. Heat treatment is the standard procedure used to degrade genetic material by heating DNA-containing media past the DNA melting temperature
